This video clip should remind us all that we should never try to get too friendly with boxing great Mike Tyson.

The former heavyweight champion of the world was in attendance for the weigh-in of the Floyd Maywether/Manny Pacquiao showdown in Las Vegas, when the camera panned on to him in the crowd and a fan decided the time had come for him to get all cuddly with Iron Mike.

That plan did not go so well as an angry Tyson lashed out and elbowed the fan to fend him off.

Mike's notorious temper is still close to the surface it seems and it looks like the fan who tried to pull off this stunt may well have had a few too many beers as he counts down to the big fight.
